Good morning friends, how are you today?
This is my new favorite outfit from Stitch Fix (my 23rd fix!) It’s the Cosmic Blue Love Callie Cuffed Skinny Pant (Size 4 for reference) and West Kei Taleen Tie Front Blouse in Dark Green (size small). (Get $25 to try StichFix free by using my link!) It’s basically my new go-to outfit, and my students probably think I don’t own enough clothes haha.
So recently, I decided to film some videos for my top posts. I actually really like presenting and feel totally comfortable in front of the camera.
What I don’t feel comfortable doing is making videos, especially editing videos. I have an excellent team that I outsource my hands and pans recipe videos too, and they do a way better job than I ever could. However, I’m trying to do more videos with me in them because the overhead recipe videos can be kind of boring.
Plus, my ultimate goal is to connect with people human to human. I know healthy eating and healthy living can be hard. I think I can reach so many more people and inspire them to make small changes toward better health when I’m in front of the lens.
Here’s the thing.
This is my first shot and attempting some video editing. I kind of figured if 12-year-old kids can make YouTube videos so can I, right? I was pretty proud of myself until I showed Mr. Hungry, and he BURST into laughter. He said, “Kelli, what is this, 6th-grade old school powerpoints?” Then I BURST into laughter because I realized he was 100% correct. We both had a pretty good laugh watching my awesome editing skills.
All this to say, I almost decided this video was so bad that I wasn’t going to upload it. Ultimately though, I decided that the very first recipe photos I uploaded on this site were HORRENDOUS! You can check it out here, I apparently never updated it. My point is that Rome wasn’t built in the day. New skills take time, whether it’s a work skill, life skill, fitness skill, cooking skill, mental health skill, whatever, they all take time. Everyone has to start somewhere. So this is me, entering the world of video editing, learning a new skill, jumping in, being proud.
Grab a cup of coffee and get ready for a great laugh! This video goes along with one of my top posts which is Are Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches Healthy?
Oh, and please give my YouTube channel some love if you haven’t already, it needs it! It’s a little baby channel! haha
Hope you enjoy and have a great day!
